Did You Know?


The lead was originally offered to Matthew Broderick. When he dropped out, the character was rewritten for Matt Dillon.


Jeffrey Willis: Listen, Pal, I'll have you know that I know Jujitsu, Karate, Judo, and some other big words, so don't mess with me alright?


The song, "Stand by Me", is credited to Ben E. King (as King), Elmo Glick (as Glick), Jerry Leiber (as Lieber), and Mike Stoller (as Stoller). 'Elmo Glick' was a pseudonym used by Leiber and Stoller, so there is a redundancy in the credit.
